I can't seem to find a can opener that I like, can easily use and that holds up over time. I used to like the classic swingline, but when it broke I bought a can opener that you squeeze rather than turn a crank. Now that one isn't working either-it is a struggle to initally pierce the can. I don't want an electric one, just a manual one that works. It took longer to open the cans than it did to cook the chili the other day. Something so simple shouldn't be so hard.
